V4 is a five month old Rottweiler puppy whose owners contacted me for Puppy Training in Carmel NYV4’s family are experienced Rottweiler owners, so they understand how important it is to have a well-behaved dog, especially when dealing with large and powerful breeds.  I have an established puppy training program that is proven effective with large dogs like V4 and even the smallest of dogs like Rocco, a 3lb. Maltese/Jack Russell puppy.

We are specifically addressing V4’s tendency to jump on furniture, bite and chew household items, and develop useful obedience commands, such as Sit, Down, Come, Leave It, etc.  Whether you are in need of puppy training in Carmel NY or anywhere else, make sure to use a safe and effective approach to training.  V4 is very receptive to training and enjoys learning.  Obedience training not only makes life easier for owners, because their dog will listen all the time – but it also boosts the puppy’s confidence in themselves.

Mental stimulation from obedience training is a great outlet for young, intelligent, and active dogs.  This helps to prevent many unwanted behaviors, as the dog has a suitable avenue to be mentally engaged with, rather than destroying items in the home, digging holes in the backyard, or barking at squirrels out the window.  A complete puppy training program is not complete without proper puppy socialization, that’s why I devised the Puppy Socialization Checklist.   

Knowledgeable puppy owners understand how important it is to be proactive with training.  It is much easier to lay a proper foundation during puppyhood, than it is to address problem behaviors that are engrained in an older dog.

Oreo is an 11 week old Bichon whose family was in desperate need of housebreaking help, so they contacted me for puppy training in Carmel NY. When it comes to housebreaking, I have two protocols. One is for dogs who are going to the bathroom outside and one is for dogs whose owners want them using “wee wee pads” in the home. This is a personal choice that the owners make, I am just there to help them achieve their goal. My only suggestion is that whatever option they choose, let it be the one you want for the long term. I advise against starting with pads in the house and then looking to transition to going outside. I think that leads to needless confusion and undue stress for both dog and owner.

In Oreo’s case, his owner needed the use of wee wee pads, because of their long work schedule. Oreo was really struggling with the concept of not soiling the floor and seeking out the pads. His owners were also very perplexed on how to communicate this to them.

In just one puppy training session, we were able to get Oreo and his family successfully moving in the right direction. Most people think puppy training will require a lot of time and effort…which are all limited commodities in 2016, but this should not be the case. My training approach is based on simple, safe and proven dog training principles. This makes training straightforward and easy for both dog and owner.

If you are struggling with housebreaking or any other issues, contact me today for a free phone consultation. Stop struggling and start enjoying your dog today!  steve@srdogtraining.com or 914-774-7654

Jax’s owners were in need of a dog trainer in Carmel NY, so they contacted me for my in-home puppy training program. Jax is an 8 week old puppy, so our initial focus on proper housebreaking and obedience training. He is doing fantastic with crate training and his housebreaking is improving every day.

This photo was taken during Jax’s first puppy obedience training session in which we were focusing on the “Place” command. This is one of the 5 Obedience Commands to Make Your Life Easier. “Place” is a great way to help a puppy learn to calm down and relax, when they become very hyperactive and biting or mouthing. This teaches the puppy to go to their dog bed and lay down. A great command for all owners to teach their dog. Regardless if you are in need of Puppy Training in Carmel NY, or anywhere else.
